Thomas Pagden

A former professional golfer and Swedish restaurant owner in Hua Hin died, aged 52, in hospital only one week after he was admitted to hospital as a result of a heart attack.

The website of the Swedish daily, Expressen, reported Thomas Pagden’s death on April 30. The original heart attach occurred while he was working in his pizzeria, ‘Roma’ in the Hia Hin subdistrict of Prachuab Khiri Kan province.

Guests tried to save Mr Pagden’s life by performing CPR. He was rushed to San Paulo Hua Hin Hospital by rescue volunteers. However, his brain did not receive the necessary amount of oxygen during the 30 minute ride to the hospital and he was admitted in an unconscious state.

Mr Pagden remained unconscious until he died. Despite intensive efforts to save his life doctors at the hospital were unable to bring him back to consciousness. “The lack of oxygen had damaged his brain irreparably,” one of the doctors who treated Mr Pagden said. He eventually died on Friday, April 28.
